In Laws-ville anyone who doesn't share his view is a moron. This week Laws Godwins himself by calling John Key a fascist.
Key, secretly, thinks parents should be banned from lightly disciplining their children. Key is, we now discover, actually one the state's nannies. A petty fascist.
Laws' racist blatherings against Maori are also becoming tedious. There's no doubt why he thinks he should have the right to smack - he clearly believes family violence is a brown problem.
People like Laws are too lazy to consider the real causes of family violence: social dislocation, poverty, poor education, and drug and alcohol dependency. It just happens that those things are more prevalent among the Maori community. The reasons why are complex and historical.
There is nothing inherently "wrong" with Maori. The fact Laws believes it is a problem of race exposes him as a mean racist.
